What is the lowest grade I can get to resit an as?

Can I resit an as and do the a2 at the same time?

Can I resit certain modules if it was not the whole a level that was bad?

Can I resit and stay within the same college/sixth form?

(Maths edexcel a level btw)

OK, I'm not doing Maths A level but I've re-sat an Edexcel AS this year so thought I'd share my experiences.

Lowest grade - you can resit it with any grade if you pay (and you most likely WILL have to pay, so be warned).

Can you resit an AS and do an A2? - yes you should be able to. I re-sat an AS and did the A2 in the same exam season.

Can you resit certain modules? - I didn't do Maths, but I was able to re-sit just one AS paper and leave the other alone.

Can you resit and stay? - yes! It shouldn't be a problem.

Different schools and colleges have different policies about it though. Make sure you talk to your teacher.

Again thanks for the help but how much would I have to pay and how/when do I apply for a resit?

I think it's around £30 a subject.

As for applying for a resit, your teacher should be able to help with that. Generally all you need to do is hand in a cheque to the exams office and ask to be entered for the exam. Make sure you know which unit(s) you're resitting!

I personally contacted edexcel to ask about resits for next year and they said you can retake anything you want including old spec AS and A2 exams so don't panic
